This probably won't have anything new for a die-hard diesel maven, but that's not us. There are lots of other vehicle technologies that we're more excited about, overall, but it's good that advances in other areas are being matched in the diesel realm, as well.
And, it is worth noting that some of the environmental concerns about diesel (higher soot and NOx emissions) are also due to be addressed in new emissions requirements starting in the 2007 model year. So, at that point, diesel will be an even more environmentally friendly option than it currently is.
Diesel's not as sexy as some other transportation technologies, but the likely availability of biofuels for it makes it worth keeping an eye on.
